If it's up to us, spring can come! In order to shorten the waiting time, we have three decoration ideas that will make you feel like Easter.

This is what you need for the egg warmer:

  • sheet of paper
  • Craft felt in yellow, red and light blue
  • small feathers (craft shop)
  • black pen
  • compasses
  • scissors
  • French chalk
  • pinking shears
  • pins
  • Sewing machine and matching yarn

And that's how easy it is:

1. On the sheet of paper draw a circle with a diameter of about 18 cm, cut and quarter.

2. Take one quarter as a template, transfer twice to the felt with a chalk and cut with the zigzag shear.

3. Cut red and white beak and comb, place between the two pieces of felt. Also pin the springs and sew everything together.

4. Mull the eyes.

  • black pen


And that's how easy it is:

1. Download template, print and cut out. Transfer to the patterned paper and cut out again so that you get two parts.

2. Draw a triangular beak on the red paper and cut it out.

3. Cut off about 10 cm from the parcel cord for the legs and knot them on one side.

4. Fold both patterned pieces of paper on the short side first in the middle, in order to then be able to bend them over again in the middle (always fold only 4 cm).

5. If you open the papers again, you can see the resulting fold, in which each 1 leg is glued in with hot glue.

6. Also glue the beak and the feathers.

7. Now both "legged" pieces of paper stick together.

8. Finally, paint one eye and use the needle and thread to make the right suspension.

You need this for the placemat:

  • Computer, printer and paper for the template
  • patterned fabric
  • red and yellow thin felt (craft shop)
  • scissors
  • French chalk
  • pins
  • Sewing machine and matching yarn
  • fabric scissors
  • Sewing needle and black yarn


And that's how easy it is:

1. Print the template and cut it out. Transfer and cut the body twice onto the desired fabric, transfer the details (beak, etc.) to felt and cut out.

2. Place the two halves of the body right side to the right and place the details in the correct position. Stuck everything. Make sure that the details have to point inwards, because the whole is later turned over.

3. Use the sewing machine to sew the two halves together using a straight edge. Leave a small opening at the bottom for turning.

4. Turn the fabric to the right and sew the opening by hand.

5. Embroider an eye with black yarn.
